cause of allah

Salam, some time ago I started extracting hadiths that belong to the Collection of Imam al-Bukhari out of a website to use it for a smartphone app I was planning. I also thought why not use that to also generate some pdf’s out of it. So thats what I have done here. There is one pdf containing all the books from Sahih al-Bukhari and there is also one pdf for each book of the collection. It only includes the hadith in the english translation, also there is the reference for each hadith (Hadith number of total collection & hadith number in that specific book). When you donwload the pdf you will be able to search through the document to find the hadiths that contain the word or exact phrase you are looking for. In sha Allah someone will benefit out of this. Anyway if you have any remarks or have found something that needs to be corrected, let me know.

teman

gue pernah ngerasain fase yang males banget menjalin pertemanan sama orang gara-gara bullying, berusaha bersahabat sama seseorang yang toxic banget karena berharap bisa memperbaiki dia, sampe ketemu orang yang paling geje kayak mbak Widi.

pelajaran yang gw dapet dari semuanya adalah…..

yang ngebuat kita punya beban saat menjalin pertemanan adalah ketika kita berekspektasi kalo kebaikan kita harus dibalas dengan kebaikan yang sama. Kita selalu berfikir bahwa kita berbuat baik ke seseorang karena orang tersebut teman kita. Jadinya kadang kita ngeras bersalah dan tidak setia saat harus ninggalin temen kita yang toxic, juga ngerasa sedih kalo ada temen kita yang tiba-tiba menjauh dari kita.

Itu manusiawi banget sih.

Tapi kelak ada masanya kita harus lebih memprioritaskan kesehatan emosi dibandingin ngurus hal-hal yang kayak gitu. Syaratnya adalah….kita harus berani berprinsip kebaikan kita itu hak semua orang. Tapi masalah berbagi rasa, berikan ke orang yang bener-bener pantas buat kita. Jodoh sebenernya bukan sekedar tentang pasangan. Pekerjaan, tempat tinggal, keluarga dan sahabat-sahabat kita juga jodoh. Pada pekerjaan, tempat tinggal, keluarga dan sahabat….kita berbagi rasa. Pilih sahabat yang menumbuhkan kamu jadi orang yang lebih kuat dan lebih bahagia. Bukan orang-orang yang justeru nurunin self esteem. Ini penting banget lho.

Gue emang bukan tipikal orang yang suka declare “You’re my friend and i love you cause Allah”. Gue justeru ngerasa ga nyaman kalo terlalu deket sama seseorang sampe dia nanya gue kemana dan ngapain aja.

Gue lebih suka berteman secara casual sama sama banyak orang dan ngasih pertolongan ke mereka selagi gw bs. 

Tapi kan lo introvert De? Kok bisa maksa diri bergaul sama banyak orang?

Introvert nggak bisa bergaul itu cuma stereotype. Lagian introvert itu bukan alasan yang masuk akal buat kita menutup pintu rezeki. Kesempatan berbuat baik dan ngebantuin orang di sekitar kita termasuk rezeki lho.

Lagi-lagi….berbuat baiklah kepada semua orang….tapi urusan pertemanan, pilihlah yang menumbuhkan.

gue tuh punya temen yang ngeselin tapi lucu. Suatu hari, gue bertengkar sama dia dan marah banget. Nah, waktu itu, gue jadi ketua panitia sebuah kegiatan. Mau minta tolong kan gengsi soalnya dia lagi marah sama gue. Eh ternyata dia datang tanpa diminta sambil pasang muka ngeselin dan bilang:

“Gue bantu lo di sini lillahi ta’ala“

“Lah…lillahi ta’ala kok declare. Riya itu namanya“

“Iyalah. Gue declare biar lo ga ke-GR-an gue bantuin terus lo mikir masalah lo sama gue udah selesai. Masalah ini belom kelar. Jadi jangan berharap kita damai“

pas di kost, gue senyum-senyum sendiri inget temen gue. Akhirnya pas masalah selesai, gue nanya ke dia lagi.

“Eh lo seriusan yang pas ngomong ngebantuin gue lillahi ta’ala itu? Wkwkwk“

“Emang gue kelihatan ga serius?“

“Yaa kirain lo kasihan sama gue, tapi gengsi mo bilang“

“Enggaklah. Lo tuh ngeselin. Tapi gue ga mau kehilangan pahala dari bantuin orang. Makanya gue dateng“

gara-gara ngobrol sama temen gue ini, gue jadi tahu ada orang yang ngomongin “Gue ngelakuin ini lillahi ta’ala” dengan nada ngeselin. Kalo biasanya gue denger kata ini dari manusia selembut malaikat yang ngomongnya kalem banget, waktu itu gue denger dari orang yang ngambek….yang ikhlas tapi tetep ngeselin ~XD

yang ngebuat gue semakin cinta sama agama ini adalah ketika gue belajar tentang sikap adil. Kita selalu perlu menata niat berbuat baik. Lillahi ta’ala. Semarah apapun kita ke seseorang, kita harus ingat bahwa dia masih berhak dapat bantuan dari kita. Jadi pada dasarnya, islam itu mengajarkan berbuat kebaikan tanpa syarat. Hanya kadang gue menyempitkan ruang lingkup gue dalam berbuat baik…..gue kadang masih suka berbuat baik ke orang karena dia temen gue ~_~ jadi kalo bukan temen gue, gue tuh males mengalokasikan waktu buat bantuin dia.

*

Kalo ntar temen kamu toxic banget, nggak perlu merasa bersalah buat ngambil jarak. Buka ruang pertemanan sebanyak-banyaknya. Miliki lebih banyak lagi sahabat yang menumbuhkan.

Dan buat si toxic tadi, kamu bisa tetap menyayanginya tanpa perlu memikul beban perasaan “ingin sikap kita dibalas dengan sikap yang sama”, karena balasan atas perbuatan baik kita itu cuma urusan Allah. Bukan urusan orang yang bersinggungan dengan kita. Berbuat baik ke dia sesanggupnya kamu aja, jangan lupa didoakan. Overthink tentang orang seperti ini justeru menutup pintu pertemanan kamu sama temen-temen yang lain. Padahal bisa jadi dengan membuka pertemanan yang lebih luas, rasa kesal kamu ke dia akan terkikis sedikit demi sedikit.

Anyway….

pas gue di dunia kerja, gw ngerasain persahabatan gue itu malah beda banget lho sama persahabatan zaman kuliah yang cenderung nge-gank karena tongkrongannya sama. Pas kerja ini, gw banyak nemu temen yang meskipun berjauhan tapi bisa saling bantu pas lagi saling butuh.

Orang yang saling menyayangi itu kadang nggak saling memprioritaskan karena masing-masing punya kesibukan sendiri. Tapi ketika kamu butuh bahu untuk bersandar, mereka akan bisa menjadi bahu yang hangat….bahu yang memberi kita sandaran tanpa membuat kita harus terlihat lemah. Ini berlaku dalam persahabatan dan (mungkin) juga pasangan. Gue dapet nasihat ini dari temen gue yang udah nikah dan mereka berdua fokus berdakwah di bidang masing-masing. Tapi karena gue belum ngerasain sendiri, makanya gue kasih kata mungkin yang dikurung.

Lets talk about patience

واصبر وما صبرك إلا بالله
“And be patient for your patience is but by Allah…” [an-Nahl 16:127]

واصبر لحكم ربك
” Await in patience the command of your Lord…” [at-tur 52:48].

ولا تهنوا ولا تحزنوا
“So lose not heart nor despair…” [Al ‘Imran 3:139].

أولئك يؤتون أجرهم مرتين بما صبروا
“These shall be granted their reward twice, because they are steadfast…” [al-Qasas 28:54].

إنما يوفى الصابرون أجرهم بغير حساب
“…Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account.” [az-Zumar 39:10]. (the reward for every deed is known except patience!)

وجعلنا منهم أئمة يهدون بأمرنا لما صبروا وكانوا بآياتنا يوقنون
“And We made from among them leaders guiding by Our command when they were patient and [when] they were certain of Our signs. “ [as-Sajdah 32:24]. (patience is a prequisite for leadership in religion!)

و اصبروا إن الله مع الصابرين
“…and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” [al-Anfal 8:46]. (patience earns the companionship of Allah)

واستعينوا بالصبر والصلاة
“And seek assistance through patience and prayer…” [al-Baqarah 2:45].

والملائكة يدخلون عليهم من كل باب
سلام عليكم بما صبرتم فنعم عقبى الدار
“…And the angels will enter upon them from every gate, [saying],”Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home.” [ar-Ra’d 13:23-24].

إلا الذين صبروا وعملوا الصالحات أولئك لهم مغفرة وأجر كبير
“Except for those who are patient and do righteous deeds; those will have forgiveness and great reward.” [Hud 11:11]. 

ولمن صبر وغفر إن ذلك لمن عزم الأمور
“And whoever is patient and forgives – indeed, that is of the matters [requiring] determination” [ash-Shura 42:43] (Allah has made patience a standard for courage and determination in ones affairs)

وكأين من نبي قاتل معه ربيون كثير فما وهنوا لما أصابهم في سبيل الله وما ضعفوا وما استكانوا والله يحب الصابرين
” And how many a prophet [fought and] with him fought many religious scholars. But they never lost assurance due to what afflicted them in the cause of Allah , nor did they weaken or submit. And Allah loves the patient.” [Al ‘Imran 3:146]. ( its a condition of his love)

وما يلقاها إلا الذين صبروا وما يلقاها إلا ذو حظ عظيم
“But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except one having a great portion [of good].” [Fussilat 41:35]. 

ألم تر أن الفلك تجري في البحر بنعمة الله ليريكم من آياته إن في ذلك لآيات لكل صبار شكور
“Do you not see that ships sail through the sea by the favor of Allah that He may show you of His signs? Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful.” [Luqman 31:31]. 

ومن آياته الجوار في البحر كالأعلام
إن يشأ يسكن الريح فيظللن رواكد على ظهره إن في ذلك لآيات لكل صبار شكور
” And of His signs are the ships in the sea, like mountains. If He willed, He could still the wind, and they would remain motionless on its surface. Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful” [ash-Shura 42:32-33].

No one likes to fall. And few people would ever choose to drown. But in struggling through the ocean of this life, sometimes it’s so hard not to let the world in. Sometimes the ocean does enter us. The dunya does seep into our hearts.

And like the water that breaks the boat, when dunya enters, it shatters our heart. It shatters the boat. Recently, I was reminded of what a broken boat looks like, of what happens when you let everything in. I was reminded because I saw someone, just like me, fall in love too much with this life and seek to be filled by the creation. So the ocean of dunya shattered her boat, as it had shattered mine, and she fell out into the water. But she stayed down too long, and didn’t know how to come back up or what to hold on to.

So she drowned.

If you allow dunya to own your heart, like the ocean that owns the boat, it will take over. You will sink down to the depths of the sea. You will touch the ocean floor. And you will feel as though you were at your lowest point. Entrapped by your sins and the love of this life, you will feel broken. Surrounded by darkness. That’s the amazing thing about the floor of the ocean. No light reaches it.

But, this dark place is not the end. Remember that the darkness of night precedes the dawn. And as long as your heart still beats, this is not the death of it. You don’t have to die here. Sometimes, the ocean floor is only a stop on the journey. And it is when you are at this lowest point, that you are faced with a choice. You can stay there at the bottom, until you drown. Or you can gather pearls and rise back up—stronger from the swim, and richer from the jewels.

If you seek Him, God can raise you up, and replace the darkness of the ocean, with the light of His sun. He can transform what was once your greatest weakness into your greatest strength, and a means of growth, purification and redemption. Know that transformation sometimes begins with a fall. So never curse the fall. The ground is where humility lives. Take it. Learn it. Breathe it in. And then come back stronger, humbler and more aware of your need for Him. Come back having seen your own nothingness and His greatness. Know that if you have seen that Reality, you have seen much. For the one who is truly deceived is the one who sees his own self—but not Him. Deprived is the one who has never witnessed his own desperate need for God. Reliant on his own means, he forgets that the means, his own soul, and everything else in existence are His creation.

Seek God to bring you back up, for when He does, He will rebuild your ship. The heart that you thought was forever damaged will be mended. What was shattered will be whole again. Know that only He can do this. Seek Him.
And when He saves you, beg forgiveness for the fall, feel remorse over it—but not despair. As Ibn ul Qayyim (ra) has said: “Satan rejoiced when Adam (peace be upon him) came out of Paradise, but he did not know that when a diver sinks into the sea, he collects pearls and then rises again.”

There is a powerful and amazing thing about tawbah (repentance) and turning back to Allah (swt). We are told that it is a polish for the heart. What’s amazing about a polish is that it doesn’t just clean. It makes the object that is polished even shinier than it was before it got dirty. If you come back to God, seek His forgiveness, and refocus your life and heart on Him, you have the potential to be even richer than if you’d never fallen at all. Sometimes falling and coming back up gives you wisdom and humility that you may never otherwise have had. Ibn ul Qayyim (ra) writes:

“One of the Salaf (Pious Predecessors) said: “Indeed a servant commits a sin by which he enters Paradise; and another does a good deed by which he enters the Fire.” It was asked: How is that? So he replied: “The one who committed the sin, constantly thinks about it; which causes him to fear it, regret it, weep over it and feel ashamed in front of his Lord—the Most High—due to it. He stands before Allah, broken-hearted and with his head lowered in humility. So this sin is more beneficial to him than doing many acts of obedience, since it caused him to have humility and humbleness—which leads to the servant’s happiness and success—to the extent that this sin becomes the cause for him entering Paradise. As for the doer of good, then he does not consider this good a favor from his Lord upon him. Rather, he becomes arrogant and amazed with himself, saying: I have achieved such and such, and such and such. So this further increases him in self-adulation, pride and arrogance—such that this becomes the cause for his destruction.”

Allah (swt) reminds us in the Qur’an to never lose hope. He says: “Say, ‘O My servants who have transgressed against their souls [by sinning], despair not of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful,’” (39:53).

And so, this is a call to all those who have become enslaved by the tyranny of the self, imprisoned in the dungeon of the nafs (self) and desires. It is a call to all those who have entered the ocean of dunya, who have sunk into its depths, and become trapped by its crushing waves. Rise up. Rise up to the air, to the Real world above the prison of the ocean. Rise up to your freedom. Rise up and come back to life. Leave the death of your soul behind you. Your heart can still live and be stronger and purer than it ever was. Does not the polish of tawbah remake the heart even more beautiful than it was? Remove the veil you have sewn with your sins. Remove the veil between you and Life, between you and Freedom, between you and Light—between you and God. Remove the veil and rise up. Come back to yourself. Come back to where you began. Come back Home. Know that when all the other doors have shut in your face, there is One that is always open. Always. Seek it. Seek Him and He will guide you through the waves of the cruel ocean, into the mercy of the sun.

This world cannot break you—unless you give it permission. And it cannot own you unless you hand it the keys – unless you give it your heart. And so, if you have handed those keys to dunya for a while—take them back. This isn’t the End. You don’t have to die here. Reclaim your heart and place it with its rightful owner:
God.

—  Yasmin Mogahed, excerpt from “Reclaim Your Heart”

Ibn ‘Abbas رضي الله عنه:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “Two eyes will never be touched by the fire of Hell; an eye which weeps out of Fear of Allah and an eye which spends the night in guarding in the Cause of Allah .”

[At-Tirmidhi]

إِنَّ اللَّهَ فَالِقُ الْحَبِّ وَالنَّوَىٰ يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَمُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتِ مِنَ الْحَيِّ ذَٰلِكُمُ اللَّهُ فَأَنَّىٰ تُؤْفَكُونَ

Surely Allah causes the grain and the stone to germinate; He brings forth the living from the dead and He is the bringer forth of the dead from the living; that is Allah! how are you then turned away.

فَالِقُ الْإِصْبَاحِ وَجَعَلَ اللَّيْلَ سَكَنًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ حُسْبَانًا ذَٰلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ

He causes the dawn to break; and He has made the night for rest, and the sun and the moon for reckoning; this is an arrangement of the Mighty, the Knowing.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُمُ النُّجُومَ لِتَهْتَدُوا بِهَا فِي ظُلُمَاتِ الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ قَدْ فَصَّلْنَا الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ

And He it is Who has made the stars for you that you might follow the right way thereby in the darkness of the land and the sea; truly We have made plain the communications for a people who know.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنشَأَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ فَمُسْتَقَرٌّ وَمُسْتَوْدَعٌ قَدْ فَصَّلْنَا الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَفْقَهُونَ

And He it is Who has brought you into being from a single soul, then there is (for you) a resting-place and a depository; indeed We have made plain the communications for a people who understand.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ نَبَاتَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ فَأَخْرَجْنَا مِنْهُ خَضِرًا نُّخْرِجُ مِنْهُ حَبًّا مُّتَرَاكِبًا وَمِنَ النَّخْلِ مِن طَلْعِهَا قِنْوَانٌ دَانِيَةٌ وَجَنَّاتٍ مِّنْ أَعْنَابٍ وَالزَّيْتُونَ وَالرُّمَّانَ مُشْتَبِهًا وَغَيْرَ مُتَشَابِهٍ انظُرُوا إِلَىٰ ثَمَرِهِ إِذَا أَثْمَرَ وَيَنْعِهِ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكُمْ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

And He it is Who sends down water from the cloud, then We bring forth with it buds of all (plants), then We bring forth from it green (foliage) from which We produce grain piled up (in the ear); and of the palm-tree, of the sheaths of it, come forth clusters (of dates) within reach, and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, alike and unlike; behold the fruit of it when it yields the fruit and the ripening of it; most surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.

وَجَعَلُوا لِلَّهِ شُرَكَاءَ الْجِنَّ وَخَلَقَهُمْ وَخَرَقُوا لَهُ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ

And they make the jinn associates with Allah, while He created them, and they falsely attribute to Him sons and daughters without knowledge; glory be to Him, and highly exalted is He above what they ascribe (to Him).

بَدِيعُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لَهُ وَلَدٌ وَلَمْ تَكُن لَّهُ صَاحِبَةٌ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth! How could He have a son when He has no consort, and He (Himself) created everything, and He is the Knower of all things.

ذَٰلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبُّكُمْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ خَالِقُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ فَاعْبُدُوهُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَكِيلٌ

That is Allah, your Lord, there is no god but He; the Creator of all things, therefore serve Him, and He has charge of all things.

لَّا تُدْرِكُهُ الْأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الْأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ

 

Vision comprehends Him not, and He comprehends (all) vision; and He is the Knower of subtleties, the Aware

—  Surah Al-Anaam, Ayaat 95-103
The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to say, “O Allah! I seek refuge with You from helplessness, laziness, cowardice and feeble old age; I seek refuge with You from afflictions of life and death and seek refuge with You from the punishment in the grave.
—  Sahih al-Bukhari, Fighting for the Cause of Allah, Book 56, Hadith 39
And why should we not rely upon Allah while He has guided us to our [good] ways. And we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us. And upon Allah let those who would rely [indeed] rely.
—  Quran 14:12

anonymous asked:

After the recent terrorist attacks Im finding it increasingly harder to be okay with Islam

The media feeds you with such lies I don’t blame you. I would have blamed you if you believed the media without doing your own research, but you sending me this ask is a way for you to gain knowledge, is it not? I’m proud of you for reaching out to me before you start hating us. 

The media is this most biased source of information ever. Please do not be conditioned into what the media wants you to be brainwashed into. 

What such terrorist groups represents, first of all, are not Islamic. Far from Islam are these twats. I was actually reading the Quran this morning and came across the verse:

if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.” [Quran 5:32]

Oh look! There is a verse for terrorist groups like ISIS as well! : 

“And make not Allah’s (Name) an excuse in your oaths against your doing good and acting piously, and making peace among mankind. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower (i.e. do not swear much and if you have sworn against doing something good then give an expiation for the oath and do good).” [Quran 2:224]
I.E.,: DO NOT USE ALLAH’S NAME TO DO SHAMEFUL ACTS [SUCH AS KILLING].

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” [Quran 2:256]
AKA: DO NOT FORCE PEOPLE INTO ISLAM

The conditions of Muslims setting war is set by a verse in sūrat l-baqarah. This verse explains that war is only acceptable if it is for oppressed people. Allah also says to resort to peace if the other side does as well - 

And fight in the cause of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from where they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque (in Makkah) until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the reward of the unbelievers. But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.“ [Quran 2:190-192]

Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory” [Quran 22:39]

The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) loves not those who do wrong. But indeed if any do help and defend themselves after a wrong (done) to them, against such there is no cause of blame. The blame is only against those who oppress men and insolently transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice: for such there will be a grievous penalty. And whoever is patient and forgiving, these most surely are actions due to courage.“ [Quran 42:40-43]

SO IN CONCLUSION, ISIS AND OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS DO NOT REPRESENT ISLAM. THE QURAN AND TIME AND TIME SAYS FIGHT IF THEY START IT (YOU ARE BEING OPPRESSED) BUT GO TO PEACE IF THEY DO AS WELL. 

Also, let me drop one last verse from the Quran:

And do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites but do not harm them, and rely upon Allah. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.” [33:48]

What ISIS and others are doing, well have fun in hell you fools. Using Allah’s glorified name to carry out your horrific acts, spoiling the name Islam and Allah, woe and curses be to them! 

Other facts -

Did you know after 9/11 there was a spike in conversions to Islam because people picked up the Quran in interest to see how terrible Islam is but found love, peace, and mercy instead?

Did you know that those who were held captive by ISIS and escaped said that they did not even have a Quran, they did not pray the 5 daily prayers, they would get drunk, and they raped and abused. Obviously, they are far from Islam as these are far from the teachings of Islam.

Please do not believe the media, they only want for you to hate us. Divide and conquer, you’ve probably learned that in history class. 

Again, thank you for reaching out before being absorbed in judgments.

A man devoted himself in the worship of Allah for 50 years, so Allah favoured him: ‘I have forgiven you.’

The main said: ‘My Lord, what did you forgive? I never committed a sin.’

Allah caused a pain in his neck, as a result of which he was unable to sleep or pray. Then it stopped, and he was able to sleep. After that an angel visited him and the man complained to him about the suffering he went through in the pain of his neck. The angel said: ‘Your Lord says:

‘Your worship of 50 years is equal to the relief of the pain in your neck.’’

Hardships that bring us closer to Allah are a blessing in disguise. Allah causes bad things to happen to good people, in order that a greater good come to them in the long run. And “Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning” [al-Zumar 39:10]
Allah has promised that if we are sincere in faith and do righteous good deeds, He will give us best of life in this world and reward accordingly in the hereafter.
“Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)” [al-Nahl 16:97]
We ask Allah to relieve your suffering or hardship you are going through and reward you abundantly for your patience. Ameen.

The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “He who says: ‘Astaghfir ullah-alladhi la ilaha illa Huwal-Haiyul-Qayyumu, wa atubu ilaihi (I seek the forgiveness of Allah, there is no true god except Allah, the Ever-Living, the Self- Subsisting, and I turn to Him in repentance),’ his sins will be forgiven even if he should have run away from the battlefield (while he was engaged in fighting for the Cause of Allah)
—  Abu Dawud
When the Prophet ﷺ arrived at Medina he found that the Jews observed fast on the day of ‘Ashura’. They were asked the reason for the fast. They replied, “This is the day when Allah caused Moses and the children of Israel to have victory over Pharaoh, so we fast on this day as a sign of glorifying it.” Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said, “We are closer to Moses than you.” Then he ordered that fasting on this day should be observed.

may Allah grant you the love that is good for you.
may Allah distance you from the love that destroys you.
may Allah cause your heart to not grieve a love that is not meant for you.
